The SA nationals saga which has troubled Ghanaians for a while now can be said to be put to rest as the three ex police officers have been deported. According to reports, the deported trio were put on board South African Airways flight number 210, to Johannesburg.

Also, some reports have said their entry passports have been cancelled. Their deportation comes in the wake of numerous protests suggesting the trio are a threat to national security.

Before they were deported, the three men have been in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI). Despite the fact they had been granted bail by the court, the BNI still detained them against court orders.

Arrest Of The Trio

The trio; Ahmed Shaik Hazis (rtd), 54,Warrant Officer Denver Dwayhe, 33, and Captain Mlungiseli Jokani, 45 reportedly came into the country to train security guards for the NPP. They were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit crime and unlawful training.

The Head of Nana Addo’s security team Captain (rtd) Edmund Koda and the owner of the EL-Capitano Hotel Captain (rtd) Acquah where the 3 ex-officers lodged were also arrested and charged but the state later dropped the charges. However, Captain Koda was later re-arrested and kept in BNI custody until Monday when he was released on health grounds.

Recent Discovery

Further screening into the men’s possible motive revealed that  one of the SA nationals had in his possession, a comprehensive document on the vulnerability of some workers in Superlock Technologies Limited (STL). STL happens to be a company contracted by the Electoral Commission to transmit tallied election results. It was then deduced that one of their motives was probably to compromise elections results.
